some updates

The cycle of being exhausted and exploited continues, but here are some updates:

A copy of Rotura at my desk.
  • Starting off with the image above–happy to report that I received my author copies of my new book, Rotura (Black Lawrence Press), which is due out officially this Friday, March 18th. There’s still time to pre-order a copy.
  • Also, I will be doing an Instagram Account Takeover for Bear Review starting tomorrow. I’ll be posting and doing stories all week, so be sure to stop by their account and say hi 🙂
  • Also also, I am happy to share that my poem, “Mexican,” is included in the latest issue of THRUSH Poetry Journal. THRUSH has been a dream journal for over a decade, so excited to be a part of this issue including work by Deborah Allbritain, Carla Carlson, James Diaz, Tennessee Hill, Chisom Okafor, Doug Ramspeck, and Meg Thompson.
  • Lastly, I’m excited to share that the latest issue of Salamander is out in the world (after some printer delays)! This issue features stellar work by Anindita Sengupta, Lauren K. Carlson, Sara Elkamel, Seth Leeper, Katie Marya, Sarah Cedeño, and this moving lyric sequence by Glen Stowell. Stay tuned for details of a virtual event to celebrate this latest issue!

I’ve got a few more things in the works related to Rotura, but for now, thank you to everyone who has pre-ordered and/or who is reading this right now. I hope you are finding ways to find peace and compassion for yourselves and others.

  1. I am so glad Rotura is progressing—have ordered it and planning to review for Witty Partition, Summer issue.
